Held in suspended animation until the high tech futuristic times of the 25th century, Buck Rogers works side by side with Wilma Dearing, the female soldier, and Doctor Huer, scientist and inventor.
Just recently our heroes have come from an adventure out past the moons of Jupiter, in pursuit of Killer Kane and Ardellah. Today they’re safely back on earth in doc Huers science lab, with Kane and Ardella safely locked away, a new adventure is about to begin.
The doc has created a new invention known as the mechanical mole. Buck is out doing test flights on new space rockets, but doc and Wilma want him back to help test the mechanical mole. As you might imagine, the invention is to be a vehicle that will explore the depths of the earth. In his describing it, Doc tells facts about the earth’s core.
With the friends gathered together, a crowd has also gathered to catch a glimpse of the mole. Suddenly, word comes in that Killer Kane and Ardella have managed to escape their prison. Watch out everybody! The Mechanical Mole is moving by itself. Yu don’t suppose that Kane and Ardellah have something to do with this do you? Howe did they manage to escape and get back to earth so quickly any way?
Stay tuned to see what develops next.
The Mechanical Mole, 2of7. 1939.
A terror stricken crowd watches as the mechanical mole moves slowly across the ground. It becomes clear that Killer Kane and Ardellah are at the wheel. What can be done?
Doc Huer issues orders to Black Barney to put a stop to the efforts of the bad guys. The mole comes to a stop, and the crowd loses their terror and moves curiously closer. Will Doc Huer’s plans to use paralysis rays work? There’s just one problem. Doc didn’t count on Buck being in the way, and now he’s suffocating down there.
